ABSTRACT
The article discusses the evidence of visual hemineglect in an archeological specimen. It explains that the hemineglect is a phenomenon that is commonly associated with right hemispheric brain injury-usually an ischemic stroke. It notes that the phenomenon of visual hemineglect has demonstrated in the art works by various artists in Europe.

    Infarction in adult rat brain was induced by middle cerebral arterial occlusion (MCAO) followed by reperfusion to examine whether taxifolin could reduce cerebral ischemic reperfusion (CI/R) injury. Taxifolin administration (0.1 and 1.0 μg/kg, i.v.) 60 min after MCAO ameliorated infarction (by...

    A method has been described of producing brain lesions in dogs with some regularity. Hypotension was induced by bleeding, together with administration of Arfonad, and cerebral ischemia by a period of head-up tilt during the induced hypotension. Ten of 30 animals survived 5 days or more, and the...

    Experimental cerebral ischemic stroke is exacerbated by inflammatory T-cells and is accompanied by systemic increases in CD4CD25Foxp3 regulatory T-cells (Treg). To determine their effect on ischemic brain injury, Treg were depleted in Foxp3 mice prior to stroke induction. In contrast to a recent...
